And these ungodly men did not stop there. In the true response of a mob.. Vs:67- they “..hit him with their fists. And some slapped Him, saying, `Prophecy to us, you Messiah! Who hit you that time?’” He must have been blindfolded at that time. But here is judge, jury, bailiffs, all abusing the accused in court! I know many of us are visual learners so watch as this travesty of justice in Mt. 26 comes to life.

{Video Clip: Passion of the Christ. Start- Chap. 8:26:01 - End- 28:30 - 2:29}

We are all outraged when we see a senseless beating by police in an arrest or by citizens in a riot. How much more when what you just saw happened to a man that was completely innocent!
